In the movie they docked to Endurance with the Ranger at about 68 RPM's. Once docked they retarded the spin by using thrusters which looked like it was from the Ranger. I can think of two scenarios:
- The Endurance had thrusters which fired when the Ranger docked. Which begs the question why not use wireless means to fire the retro thrusters instead of needing to dock?
- The retro thrusters were fired by the Ranger so that the physical connection to Endurance would also slow down as the Ranger slowed. But I find that hard to stomach because the sheering force on the docking port would be so great it would snap in two.
I was curious if there was anything further I was missing?
